Leaving the basic garage door behind offers you some exciting possibilities. Things that can add a great deal of style and personality to a house. This older home in Studio City has that small one-car garage popular in the ‘family car’ era that takes up most of the garage’s face. The original garage door seen below definitely needed much more than a fresh coat of paint.
Carriage door style garage doors are super popularity today. No surprise there! They work well with so many types of architecture here in Southern California. Not long ago, these were only available in high-end lines. Luckily for homeowners everywhere, getting this look is now possible even in modestly priced doors. The U224 model from 1st UDT instantly eradicated that plain-jane-look as you can see below.
The U224 is available in both long panel and short panel designs with a range of window style options. However, if you want carriage door appeal, the plain window is the right choice one to make. Just this far along in the project, this Studio City homeowner’s garage looks 100% better. But wait, we’re not quite done here.
There is no hardware available for this door model, and it does look great without it. However, Archway can always get the handle and hinge package from more expensive door lines and add it after the fact. One step up in the Steelite line you have the choice of just one style of hardware. Going into the Steelhouse line from 1st UDT, there is a wide variety of handles and door hinges to choose from, allowing you to get the look you like best.
The exciting moment, adding the final touches to this upgraded U224 short panel garage door. Special order hardware never arrives with the door, so an extra trip to the customer’s home is necessary to add handles and hinges. Working with Archway, you will always get the most creative solutions to solve problems and get the new look desired at the best price possible.
